Program Goals of the Polysomnographic Technology Program

The goals of the Stony Brook University Polysomnographic Technology Program are to offer the highest quality education in sleep diagnostics and therapeutics in a learning environment that fosters critical thinking, encourages professional leadership, inspires research, and instills a strong appreciation of ethical values and human diversity. The Polysomnographic Technology Program emphasizes excellence in clinical care by encouraging students to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become outstanding Polysomnographic Technologists and advocates to improve sleep health throughout their surrounding communities. Successful graduates will have demonstrated that they are competent entry-level polysomnographic technologists in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.
